El Al hasn’t flown on Shabbos since 1982, but we are living in times that Israel hasn’t seen in the past half century.

Israel’s flag carrier has served as a lifeline this week for IDF reservists returning to their home land and for Jews returning home after the Sukkos holiday when other airlines suspended flights to Israel. To their credit, they didn’t gouge on pricing either, affordable flights were made available even on the last seats of the plane, when airlines typically charge a small fortune.

The airline is operating flights from JFK and Bangkok on Shabbos, with Rabbinic approval, to bring reservists to Israel to help with the war effort. El Al won’t fly on Shabbos to make more money, but it has a Rabbinic obligation to do so if it will save even one life.

Flight 3014 from JFK will land in Tel Aviv within the next half hour:

The horrific slaughter of Jews this past Shabbos had shocking scenes that haven’t been seen since the holocaust.

Let us all pray this Shabbos that with G-ds help, Israel will fulfill its sovereign obligation to eradicate the evil forces that perpetrated this terror so that they can never kill or harm again. May we experience true peace in the holy land and around the world very soon!

You can also find excellent causes to give charity to before Shabbos in this post.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
